D-Link router: DI-524 broadcasting on B/G with WEP & DHCP enabled
D-Link USB Adapter: DWL-G122 ver A2, FM: 1.02 (on the approved list for the 540)
Tivo: Series 2; R54040, S/W 7.2.1-oth-01-2-540; service level D:020706
So far, I've connected the box to my home theater system, gotten picture & sound, and updated to 7.2.1 via phone line. That part all went well. the problems are - you guessed it - with wireless networking.
The adapater is recognzied by Tivo, but the signal strength jumps wildly all the way from poor (1%) to excellent (100%). The distance from the adapter to the router is under twenty feet. My laptop shows 4 of 5 bars when placed several yards further away and in a straight line from the Tivo to the adapater.
Is Tivo showing the actual signal strength or is there a bug which is causing the signal strength to fluctuate? (I read in one of the forum posts that this was the case for another adapter, so I'm just wondering if maybe....)
I tried to read through as many forum postings as I could on wireless and have tried various combinations of power cycling the Tivo, cable modem, and router as well as trying both upper and lower USB connectors on the Tivo, all without success. I'd appreciate any other ideas as I've spend a chunk of today trying to get the &$*&^*(# thing to work.
